Real AspenDecember 24, 2011
Vail this weekend unveiled the first ever cross-country skiing track at more than 11,000 feet atop Vail Mountain.

The new 5-kilometer track, just west of the Pride Express chairlift (Chair 26) near the top of the Eagle's Nest Gondola, features soaring views of 14,005-foot Mount of the Holy Cross.

“This is a great opportunity for us to introduce our guests to the basics of classic track skiing in a stunning environment that offers beautiful views and the Gore Range as a backdrop,” said Joe Schmitt, supervisor of the Vail Mountain Nordic School. “It also offers guests the opportunity to learn the art of cross-country skiing before venturing out on a wilderness tour with the Nordic School.”
The new track offers various cross-country routes, including flats suited for beginners as well as rolling terrain for the more experienced skier. It is open to the public free of charge during gondola operating hours. A valid season pass or foot passenger ticket is required to ride the gondola.

The Vail Nordic School offers lessons daily from 10 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. and guests can register at the Golden Peak Nordic School desk at 9:30 a.m. to get outfitted for the lesson. Transportation is provided from Golden Peak to Lionshead and the Eagle Bahn Gondola). Lessons are $87 and include all rental equipment. Reservations are not required.

In addition to the new cross-country track, Adventure Ridge at Eagle's Nest offers tubing, kids' snowmobiling, bungee trampolines and ski biking Sunday and Monday from 11 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., with the last tubing session beginning at 3:30 p.m. and Tuesday through Saturday beginning at 11 a.m. and into the evening. Ski biking is offered Tuesday through Saturday beginning at 4:45 p.m.
